Auto Accidents in Missouri

Callaway, MO - Catherine Jackson & Richard Jackson Hurt in Auto Wreck on I-70 near Cedar Creek DrEvery day, vehicle accidents take place in Missouri that have devastating impacts on the lives of those involved. We see thousands of people harmed annually due to drivers who are negligent. Some of the most common causes of vehicle accidents in our state include:

Driving while intoxicated: When drivers are intoxicated while operating their vehicles, they are likely to have problems operating their vehicles in a responsible manner. When people are intoxicated, they are likely to strike other vehicles sharing the roadway with them. Impaired drivers do not have the ability to make sound decisions while operating their vehicle, and, as a result, they are a leading cause of crashes in our state. 

Failing to obey traffic laws: Although there are laws in place to prevent drivers from engaging in various acts, we continue to see innocent people hurt as a result of drivers who fail to obey traffic laws. When drivers speed, run red lights, or fail to stop or stop signs, they are likely to cause serious accidents that dramatically change the lives of those involved.

Distractions: Many drivers who are traveling in Missouri do not pay attention to their surroundings. This is commonly caused by drivers who are texting or talking on the phone while behind the wheel. When motorists fail to see other vehicles or people traveling nearby, we can have life-changing consequences for others.

If another driver’s actions caused you harm, it is important that you reach out to a car accident lawyer in Missouri right away. You may be able to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation to help alleviate your damages.
